Orthodontic therapy is increasingly required and used
among adolescents, and this situation is not an
exception among young persons with hemophilia.
We consider that interdisciplinary work and the
implementation of effective Prevention Programs can
make Orthodontic Treatments the optimal tool for the
correction of malocclusion in people with hemophilia.
We began to implement orthodontic treatments in 2009. We are currently performing
11 treatments, and 5 others have been completed.
Fixed equipment, straight arch technique, with Roth 22 brackets were used in 12 of
these treatments. In the remaining four removable appliances were used to apply
orthopedic forces. Four devices are Howley plates with a half Expander screw,
Adams retainer and occlusal surfaces of acrylic to avoid interference.
The aim of this paper is to document the application of
this therapy in our patients during the last five years.
Besides the correction of malocclusion we find it
interesting to share, a beneficial side effect: the
improvement of teeth hygiene.

Due to our patients needs and our personal desire to provide a better quality of life, we began to give orthodontic
care in 2009.
We found little published information about Orthodontics in patients with Hemophilia.
We used the same techniques as with patients without hemophilia. We especially focused on maintaining an
excellent oral hygiene to prevent gingivitis and its consequent bleeding. There was also a rigorous inspection of the
apartology at the end of each session to detect potential factors capable of hurting soft tissues.
The objectives of the treatments were achieved with no more difficulty, and in approximately the same time (from
18 to 24 months) as with patients without Hemophilia.
